March Mildness

No laptop = winging it somewhat for the radio show, which is kind of fun even if no one's listening and the project is in even more of a holding pattern than it was before. Nonetheless! Take these mostly obscure classical compositions as a recommended listening list.
Paul Dukas: Fanfare to "La Péri" (1912) for brass ensemble
Norman Dello Joio: Introduction and Fantasies on a Chorale Tune (1986) for piano
Ernő Dohnányi: Serenade for String Trio in C major (1902)
Kurt Schwertsik: Violin Concerto no. 2 "Albayzin and Sacromonte" (2000)
Robert Schumann: Symphony no. 3 "Rhenish" (1850) for orchestra
Johann Strauss II (arr. Alban Berg): Wein, Weib, und Gesang (1869/1921) for piano, harmonium, and string quartet
Leopold Godowsky: Symphonic Metamorphosis on Wein, Weib, und Gesang (ca. 1910ish) for piano

The story behind the strange-seeming Berg/Strauss arrangement is here.
